Booty Barbecue

The Deal: Colt 45 open bar
The Place: 119 Ingraham St.
The Price: Free b4 10PM, $5 after
The Details: This looks super rad but there's a problem. Apparently there was some issue with the space owner and now the BBQ (6-10PM) is limited to only 40 people...and the RSVP list is closed. Bummer! But I say go anyway and see what happens worst case scenario is you don't get in and just come back later, after 10, then they open it up to everyone. FYI: There's a ton of performers and DJs involved so check the invite page.

Crack-A-Thon 2010 Opening

The Deal: Free "refreshments" 7-10PM
The Place: MF Gallery
The Price: FREE
The Details: Motherfucking GWAR is doing some art show in Brooklyn! Tonight is the opening party which promises free "refreshments," that has to mean booze right? There will be live bands I've never heard of to. GWAR fucking rule so just go because it has to be totally awesome.

Timo Weiland Celebrates Sping 2010

The Deal: Free Champagne and sherbert
The Place: Pas De Deux
The Price: Free, must RSVP: rsvp@pasdedeuxny.com
The Details: An invite only shopping event with free champagne and sherbert. Sounds fancy and very Sex In The City-esque. It would be a shame if a bunch of disgusting derelicts from Bushwick showed up and ruined the party...just sayin'.

The Parlour Anniversary

The Deal: Free or cheap Bombay "Saphire"
The Place: The Parlour
The Price: FREE
The Details: To be honest I have no idea if this event has free booze but the flyer has the magic words "sponsored by" followed by "Bombay Saphire Gin." Generally this means open bar but then again they spelled sapphire wrong, so who knows? There's a trunk sale from 1-8PM and live bands after.

The Deal: Free Sobieski Vodka 11-Gone; $3 PBR all night; "New lower drink prices"
The Place: Europa
The Price: Free w/ RSVP rsvp@germsnyc.com or $10 w/o
The Details: Ahh, Europa...like Greenpoint itself, this joint caters to both dirty hipsters and Polish goons. GERMS is a dance party that appeals to former but don't be surprised if some of the latter stumble in too. We're promised "new lower drink prices" - we'll see how that goes but since you can't pronounce the names of any of the beers there anyway it probably won't matter.

Heavy Metal Happy Hour: 1,000 Knives Edition

The Deal: 2-4-1 drinks 6-9PM
The Place: Arrow Bar
The Price: FREE
The Details: If you prefer some heavy shit with your hard shit then what could be better then a 3-hour booze fest with heavy metal blaring over the speakers? Well, a lot of things actually - like a free Slayer show next to a river of Jagermeister. Since that's never going to happen (again) then this is about as good as it gets. Plus it starts at 6PM and you're unemployed! Tonight is a special edition with Rich Hall of 1,000 Knives DJing.

Grace Space Shit Faced

The Deal: Open Bar 8:30-11PM
The Place: Grace Exhibition Space
The Price: FREE
The Details: To be honest I don't really know much about this but they promise a "2.5 hour open bar" which is good enough for me.

WhyLeaveAstoria.com Two Year Anniversary Party

The Deal: Free Spaten beer & free food
The Place: Studio Square
The Price: FREE
The Details: WhyLeaveAstoria? I can think of hundreds of reasons but this party isn't one of them. Some website for Astorians (?) is celebrating two years with some huge bash. The details are a bit unclear but I do know that their will be free Spaten. Spaten is the super delicious beer Germans drink out of massive steins. There's supposed to be free food to but not sure what.

Trophy 2 Year Anniversary

The Deal: $2 Miller High Life & $3 Brooklyn Lager all night
The Place: Trophy Bar
The Price: FREE
The Details: I went to Trophy bar for the first time about a month ago and I have to say it's a pretty cool bar. Plus it's 100 degrees out and they have a yard! Tonight Trophy celebrates two years with cheap beer and DJs I never heard of. If you want a nice, calm beer outside with some friends you should check this jam out.

The Deal: Vodka & Bud open bar 12-12:30
The Place: Lit
The Price: FREE (Mention Jess or Bastard at the door)
The Details: Late open bars are awesome but when they're only a half an hour it means expect a swarm and maybe 2 drinks tops. Stick with beer because the mixed drinks are weak. That said you have a pretty good chance of making out with some random NYU girl - especially if you bring a flask.

Hot Pursuit

The Deal: $3 "keg beer" and $3 cans
The Place: The Woods
The Price: FREE
The Details: The Woods is a rather awesome new venue down by the bridge. Sure it's a bitch to get to (15 minute walk from train) but it's cheap, they have a yard, and you can eat ($2 tacos and $5 burritos). It's kinda like Union Pool only nicer and with less moron tourists saying, "hey, this is the place from Nick & Norah, right?"

Lord & Taylor Fashion Show

The Deal: Free Johnnie Walker tasting bar, wine, and hors d'oeuvres
The Place: Lord & Taylor
The Price: FREE
The Details: Put on your fancy pants and comb your hair (you might want to wash it too). We've got quite an event here. Free Johnnie Walker, wine, and food. Hopefully the tasting bar includes some Blue Label because that shit is liquid heaven. The first 100 people get $20 Lord & Taylor gift cards and everyone gets 15% off after the fashion show.

All Black Everything

The Deal: 2-4-1 well & beer 10-11PM
The Place: Happy Ending
The Price: FREE
The Details: Roffeeo of DeathSet is one of the dudes behind this party which means you get some cool points for drinking here. You're encouraged to wear all black, which you were probably going to do anyway you hip motherfucker.

Knife Fight: Billy Dee B-Day Dance Party

The Deal: Colt 45 open bar (duh) 9-10PM; $2 beer all night
The Place:
Shea Stadium
The Price:
The Details: It's a fucking birthday party for Billy Dee Williams...in Bushwick...with free Colt 45...shit! The nut-job Knife Fight crew will be hosting and Radical Outing are taking care of the music (Anton Glamb, Mr. Star City, Hiro Tha Jap, etc). This has "party of the year" written all over it so don't miss it. Get there early because 400 people have RSVPd and Shea ain't big.

Lounge 45 w/ Kid Sister & FOTP

The Deal: Colt 45 open bar 9PM-???
The Place: Public Assembly
The Price: FREE w/RSVP
The Details: Lounge 45 is yet another Colt 45 event tonight, this time organized by the fine folk at JellyNYC. Kid Sister is performing and the Finger On The Pulse broskis are DJing. The free beer part is a mystery. There will def be free Colt but no one seems to know for how long. Once that runs out though you'll have to deal with Public Assembly's surprisingly expensive drink menu so flask it, maybe.

Sweat It Out

The Deal: Vodka open bar 10-11PM; $3 beer & wells all night
The Place: The Cove
The Price: FREE
The Details: I'm not sure if this is new or not but it's the first I've heard of Sweat It Out. The DJs are Roofeeo and Schoolboy. I generally avoid The Cove but with an hour open bar and $3 beer and wells all night it might be worth checking out - once the Colt 45 runs out at Public Assembly at least.

Jameson & Ginger

The Deal: Jameson & Ginger open bar 9PM-until it's gone
The Place: Huckleberry Bar
The Price: FREE
The Details: First of all, I can hardly believe that I've listed shit at Huckleberry Bar 2 days in a row. Secondly, who cares where it is when there's free Jamey and Ginge. Get hammered and then head to Bushwick Country Club or hike it up Grand to Shea Stadium for Knife Fight.

Tuesday Night Disco

The Deal: Absinthe open bar 9-10PM
The Place: Glasslands
The Price: $7
The Details: If you like weird shit and Absinthe (which is weird shit in it's own right) then this is the party for you. Live performances by Fake Babies and Head Trip Conception. If you know who they are then you're probably a weirdo, in which case you'll probably get laid here tonight.

Calcutta Rug

The Deal: Sierra Nevada open bar 8-9PM
The Place: The Cove
The Price: FREE
The Details: A Monday night Bollywood party in the heart of hipster Williamsburg...I don't get it either. The only reason I'm listing this is because it's Monday and there's not much else going on.

Monday Movies

The Deal: 2-4-1 drinks & free popcorn
The Place: Huckleberry Bar
The Price: FREE
The Details: Watch Raiders of the Lost Ark and get drunk at a joint that's way too fancy for the neighborhood. 2-4-1 drinks only apply if you sign up for a Movie Membership, whatever the hell that is.
